Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu At the Ubuntu Developer Summit, which took place last week, it was announced that the next release of the Ubuntu Linux distribution, version 10.04, will no longer carry the GIMP in its default installation. This actually touches upon somethin I've been wanting to talk about, a problem that plagues both Linux and Mac OS X: Paint.NET is Windows-only.

I do not agree. That is not a replacement for Gimp or close to Paint.NET. Tuxpaint is a more serious and useful paint application. I hope the Gnome mentality has not gripped that project or all we can expect is a MSPaint clone.

MSPaint is not a photo or paint application, it is a joke and should not be emulated. Gimp may be overkill and too difficult to use, but under delivering (notepad, mspaint, cmd, IE, etc) is worse. Something like Paint.NET is very close to ideal.

If you meant that it is working toward the feature set of Paint.NET and will be ideal when it reaches that point then yes, I agree, that would be nice.
